Were you the official photographer, Mike? That lens is one of the best values out there, IMO.
KFAQ (event sponsor) asked me to do the shoot and I was the only photographer invited and allowed behind the barrier at his book signing. I wasn't invited by the Huckabee camp but I was the official and only photographer for his visit to Tulsa.
The 18-105 lens did much better than I was expecting and I'm completely elated by its performance. I was equally pleased with my D90 handling the low light of the fluorescent lights bouncing off of the yellow/gold walls with its incredible white balance at such a high ISO.
I got a lot of good press with this shoot and looks like I'll be getting the Glenn Beck shoot in a couple of months, fingers crossed!
